Squeeze, Pulling Muscles (From the Shell)

I heard all these Squeeze songs from the same album and fell immediately in love with the band and their music!

They do it down on Camber Sands

They do it at Waikiki

Lazing about the beach all day,

At night the crickets creepy

 

Squinting faces at the sky

A Harold Robbins paperback

Surfers drop their boards and dry

And everybody wants a hat

 

But behind the chalet

My holiday’s complete

And I feel like William Tell

Maid Marian on her tiptoed feet

Pulling mussels from a shell

Pulling mussels from a shell

 

Shrinking in the sea so cold

Topless ladies look away

A he-man in a sudden shower

Shelters from the rain

 

You wish you had a motor boat

To pose around the harbor bar

And when the sun goes off to bed

You hook it up behind the car

 

But behind the chalet

My holiday’s complete

And I feel like William Tell

Maid Marian on her tiptoed feet

Pulling mussels from a shell

Pulling mussels from a shell

 

Two fat ladies window shop

Something for the mantelpiece

In for bingo all the nines

A panda for sweet little niece

 

The coach drivers stand about

Looking at a local map

About the boy who’s gone away

Down to next door’s caravan

 

But behind the chalet

My holiday’s complete

And I feel like William Tell

Maid Marian on her tiptoed feet

Pulling mussels from a shell

Pulling mussels from a shell

 

But behind the chalet

My holiday’s complete

And I feel like William Tell

Maid Marian on her tiptoed feet

Pulling mussels from a shell

Pulling mussels from a shell
